From electrifying rock to soothing acoustic to heartfelt country, The Centre Rocks has seen it all, and on Nov. 19 it’s back for the sixth time.

Join local musicians as they take the Rotary Hall Theatre Stage and rock the Centre with their own hits and maybe even a few songs you’ve heard before—this time with a country twist.

Singer Nicki Meier will start out the night with her own pop/country songs. The 17-year-old’s tunes, influenced by Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Carrie Underwood, are sure to get the audience up and moving for the rest of the night. Meier will be followed by Johnny Esau and Quinn Patterson, local gifted guitarist who also performs with groups The Colebrook Shephards and Tractorgrease Folk.

Singer/songwriter Sophia Rooke will be up next with original country songs. With beautiful melodies and compelling lyrics, Rooke’s songs will leave the audience wanting more. Chilliwack’s own Dion Weisbrod and the Unbranded will be closing the evening with a country set, inspired by Jonny Cash and Corb Lund and guaranteed to get feet tapping and boots stomping.

Chilliwack’s home-grown talent will be taking the stage with these five local talents performing throughout the night, and it’ll be an inspiration for anyone interested in producing their own art or just wanting to see what incredible talent Chilliwack has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a cheap way to kill time on a Saturday night, or want to come out and support the local music scene, The Centre Rocks is the place to be, and who knows, you may even discover your new favourite band.

 

• The Centre Rocks will take over the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s Rotary Hall Studio Theatre on Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at The Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
